This podcast goes out in tribute to the late Tracy J. Ward, tragically swept away in a flash flood on Halloween 2013.
All of the artists played in the program were selected from Tracy's 879 "music likes" on Facebook.
This podcast initially made available 2 November 2013.
UPDATE: In my haste to get this show completed and make it available, at one point in this recording a channel drops out for a while. This is because a cord became disconnected. I spotted it and reconnected it but there is a 15 minute or so segment in which a channel is lost. It is not your computer/speakers/headphones etc. - I will be re-recording this show in the near future so as to have a more sonically proper experience for y'all. At that point, this informative notice will be withdrawn.

Beautiful Tribute for Tracy J Ward
Thank you for the beautiful Tribute of Music for Tracy. My Prayers are with Michele, Jessica, Nikki, the rest of his family and the vast list of friends and the music world that Tracy was a fan and a member of. Tracy was my best friend for multiple decades. I will miss him dearly as will Texas music. The red headed converse wearing Superhero is who he was for many disadvantaged, challenge and disabled children and youth. A true inspiration to co-workers and students/patients, he would fight to great lengths for what was morally right. Tracy inspired us all to do what was right for the greater good and to strive to broaden our music taste. The raging flood waters of Texas may have taken Tracy from us physically but he is not truly gone from us forever for he will be with us always all we have to do is turn the music on and listen, he is there in the songs hidden somewhere deep in the music, if you close your eyes and listen you will see and hear him he is there wanting us to listen and enjoy the music with him. Tracy you will never be forgotten in Texas music you will live on we will see you there. Thank you El Wayno Loco Show for the wonderful mix of what Tracy loved he was there with me while I listened to every beat!
